|Bright Yellow might mean important|
The basic gist was that there was a water meter, the water meter reader needed passage into all of the apartments and that this would all go down on January 19th. One of my options was to stay at home all day on the 19th and wait for the meter reader, then awkwardly try to talk to them in French. It looked like the note said that if I wasn't going to be home, I had the option to email the meter reading to them. Not sure.
But then, another option revealed itself! My neighbors started posting papers on their doors. I saw this one first:
Two numbers separated by a comma. Apartment number written on top. Good, I can do this. So I searched for my water meter. Fortunately it was in an accessible cabinet inside one of our toilet rooms. We also have two locked doors that have hot water heaters or some other utility related thing inside. But I am not sure since they are locked!

|Something is being metered|
But then, my other neighbor posted this:
|All the numbers!|
There were no complaints on my answering machine or nasty notes on my door. In fact, my meter picture had a check tally on it when I returned home later that day.
